Despite not having a manager after the sacking of Carlo Ancelotti, Chelsea are seemingly busy attempting to reinforce their squad before the Italian's successor is appointed.

Turkey boss Guus Hiddink is expected to be the next man to step into the Stamford Bridge dugout, while another new face could also be about to seal a switch to Chelsea.

Palermo playmaker Javier Pastore is the man in question and, according to the president of the Serie A side, Chelsea have already set about attempting to secure the signature of the 21-year-old.

"Chelsea, Real Madrid and Barcelona want Pastore," Maurizio Zamparini told Radio Radio TV. "I told his agent to see what market there is for the player and he has probably spoken to some clubs.

"At the end of the week we will meet to shed a bit of light on the future of the player."


However, Chelsea will have to spend big if they are to beat their Spanish rivals to the Pastore, with Zamparini adding: "Pastore will not leave for less than 50million euros,."

An Argentina international, Pastore was Palermo's leading goalscorer in the league last season; netting 11 times for the Sicilian outfit.

Pastore joined the club in 2009 for from Huracan for €19 million and still has four years left to run on his contract at the Stadio Renzo Barbera.
